Default Grammy Awards Game 2011

This is more or less the same contest as I've run since 2004...

There's way too many categories to pick them all, so we're mostly picking the big ones with a few exceptions mixed in... Of the awards that aren't handed out on the main telecast, I believe they are announced during the preshow (and will be named on the Grammy website)... so we'll make the deadline for entries at 5PM eastern on Grammy Day, February 13th... Don't PM me your picks, post them here and increase your post count. If you decide to change your mind between your initial post and the deadline, just quote your old post and make the changes, rather than edit your original entry. In the event of a tie based on points, the earlier entry will win.

Also, I'll be on vacation during the actual ceremony, so you'll have to rely on self-scoring this time around...

Previous years' contests:
2004 - Won by Mr. Penguin, runner-up cubedbee
2005 - Won by 2M, runner-up Mr. Penguin
2006 - Won by seabass, runner-up Mr. Penguin
2007 - Won by Mr. Penguin, runner-up shadyridr
2008 - Won by Kohl, runner-up notmyfriends
2009 - Won by rekrap, runner-up notmyfriends
2010 - Won by LoneGirl, runner-up Traina

Tom has already let me know there will be a prize for the winner!

Just think, if you enter now and get every category wrong, you'd still have the earliest entry tiebreaker under your belt...
